Conversations that Inspire Change

Description:
As we approach a full year living through the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are keenly aware of the heightened anxiety present in our lives and the lives of those we have been called to serve. Pastoral conversations increasingly include expressions of worry, anger, and fear. How do we respond to the needs of this challenging season in ways that inspire faithfulness and hope? Drawing on the work of Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey, we will explore strategies and languages that promote transformative relationships.

Learn how the church responds and supports local immigration and specific ways that you can connect and become a part of the Episcopal Public Policy Network and local community advocate.
This five-week online module dives deep into the ways that each participant and congregation can participate in a framework of becoming the Beloved Community. This course addresses spiritual practices for congregational life as a way that leads to truth-telling and an understanding of culture and race in the context of history. We will deepen the ways we listen to the voice of another to hear their story and let it touch our soul.
